The 80 guests at the breakfast included representatives from both Sydney Children’s Hospital and the Royal Children’s Hospital (Melbourne) who were delighted to be seated with Carlton players, Chris Judd, Marc Murphy and Coach Brett Ratten along with GM of Football Operations Andrew McKay. During the breakfast the guests were entertained with a Q&A session with the players and coach.
Certainly the highlight of the breakfast was the announcement by Ian Juster, Southern Region GM for Hyundai Motor Company and a SWCCF board member. Ian announced that SWCCF will be supporting the research portion of a neuro-oncologist at the RCH Melbourne to the amount of $360,000 over three years, this was welcomed by the President of the Children’s Cancer Centre Foundation Jeremy Smith who was also the guest speaker at the breakfast.
